The Library's digitisation service is free to all our academic staff and allows the creation of a high quality electronic copy of a key book chapter or journal article from a print resource (whilst remaining fully copyright compliant). The scanned copy will be linked to from your Reading List - if you don't already have one, we will automatically create one for you. For information on self-management of your Library's Reading Lists, see here. Library Services' online reading list software integrates with Moodle making it very easy for students to access recommended readings.
We strongly encourage academics to provide their Subject Librarian with a Reading List for all units. You can then indicate which chapters or articles are to be digitised. Once this is done, you would only have to fill out the form below for any further digitisation requests you may have during the academic year.
It's also possible to self-manage your Library Reading List/s - once you've had some brief training, there's a really simple way to request digitisations without having to use the form below - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance on how to Request a Digitisation from within your list.
Use the form below to request a digitisation - for most requests, it's best to allow a minimum of seven working days from request to delivery.
Scanning under the CLA Licence is the safest and easiest way to provide information that is copyright protected to your students whilst remaining compliant. Our Digitisation Team will conduct all the necessary copyright checks to ensure that you are not breaking copyright law. As part of the service, we will insert it a link to the PDF into the reading list and you can link to it from within your Moodle unit area.
